Skating

Tie up your skates and glide onto one of six City of Markham maintained skating rinks! If you need equipment rentals, then head to the Markham Civic Centre where rentals are available on site. If you have your own, you can skate at any city-run rink. All rinks are weather-dependent; check the City of Markham website for rink conditions before skating.

For more information, visit the City of Markham.

What better way to get out of the house than to go on a walk with the family!
